Love this study.

If you're looking for a non-binary way to assess value, I think minutes played would be a good metric.

Robyn Regehr will be below average in any statistical analysis, but playing 22+ tough minutes a night makes him valuable.

No matter how you shake it, a team has gotten their value from a player if he plays top 6/top 4 minutes for X amount of time. NHL teams don't just give away minutes, players earn them in ways stats somtimes cannot measure.
